This book is a useful academic tool for students doing development and economic studies at university or college levels. It provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to the management and administration of development in the SADC region by involving economic, social, and environmental ideas.
Although the primary focus is on the management and administration of development, the importance of social, political, and cultural factors is also recognised. Integration is essential in order to articulate development trajectories that are sustainable, including addressing issues of poverty reduction, corruption and foreign aid problems.

In 2008, when Lehman Brothers went bankrupt and the Global Financial
Crisis (or GFC) began, there was an opportunity to buy a fully occupied
building in Wimbledon, London, at less than 50% of the market value.
(We were buying them for £160 000 when 86 South Africans had just
bought through another company for more than £320 000 each.) These
properties had extraordinary yields at this value, and, more importantly,
they were in an already established area and community. I had lived in
Wimbledon for nine years, invested in a lot of property there and knew
the rental market implicitly. I was nervous about the impact of the GFC,
but my logic was that Wimbledon was always one of the most desirable
areas, and no matter what happened to the values, people would always
want to live there, which would sustain the income on the building.
I only had one problem. I needed to find £10 million to buy the
property outright from the developer, who had basically panicked due to
the global economic conditions. I approached everyone I knew who had
money, but I just didn’t seem to be able to find a solution quick enough.
I tried to buy one unit on my own, but the developer and bank laughed
at me. The market recovered in London in less than eight months and the
opportunity was gone.
This setback, however, inspired me to create a solution to take
advantage of any situation which presented itself in the future. It is based
on nature’s laws, which suggests that, as an individual I am powerless
in comparison with the power that comes from working together as a
team. This means taking advantage of collective buying power. I met up
with Hennie Bezuidenhout in the middle of 2009 and explained how we
could create a solution to blend nature’s laws of working together with the
SCOTT PICKEN XXXVIII use of IT to provide a situation which would revolutionize the property
industry and allow people to “Create Global Wealth”.
Basically, the analogy is the same as motor cars. Before Henry Ford,
cars were only for the really wealthy and the cars were built individually.
Henry Ford came along, created mass production and said, “You can have
any colour you like as long it’s black.”
The Model-T Ford revolutionized the transportation industry and
made transportation available to the middle class. Wealth Migrate is
doing exactly the same to international, commercial and local property,
allowing everyone to create global wealth through property and it will
revolutionize property forever.
Our technique was further enhanced by crowd funding, but more
about that later.
Wealth Migrate was created to provide a global, self-service, crowdfunding
property solution, which takes advantage of local property
markets, through Best of Breed Partners and collective buying power.
This will be optimised by a Global IT Platform, providing transparency
and efficiency for investing in property markets.
It is a blend of nature’s laws and technology, a simple solution to
buying global property aggressively, with like-minded, sophisticated
investors, and so create global wealth.
For more information go to www.wealthmigrate.com.
As explained above, we provide two solutions: IPS, which helps people
invest directly in property; and Wealth Migrate, which helps investors
take advantage of collective buying power and diversification across
different assets, markets and countries.
We would like to welcome you into our world of globalisation, international property, and crowd funding, and teach you how to take advantage of some of the greatest current trends that are changing our Global Village in one simple book, called Property Going Global.

STANDARD ENGINEERING PROCEDURES FOR MINES by Paul Marais
The purpose of this publication is to lay down an accepted method of doing certain tasks in the Engineering Department.
The procedure acts as a guide to assist the worker in doing a particular job in a safe manner that is acceptable to the mine.
Standard Procedures does not substitute the supervision of the Foreman and the Engineers. It will assist workers involved to plan ahead and as result; do the job more safely and more effectively.
Why your company needs this…
This is already an accepted manual for major mining groups.
This manual is easy to understand and follow.
It could save the employer thousands of rands per employee in injury on duty claims and lost production hours. It may also save an employee the pain and loss of a serious injury.
By giving employees the opportunity to learn safe working methods it may serve as an extra cover against injury on duty law-suits.
A well trained workforce is safer and more efficient. This manual is a very small investment with a huge potential return on investment when efficiency and production is increased.
Paul Marais has over 30 years experience in mine engineering, and is considered one of South Africa’s top mine engineers.
